300 star Rodrigo Santoro returns as the mighty Xerxes in the latest Comic-Con 2013 one-sheet for 300: Rise of an Empire. Sullivan Stapleton stars as General Themistokles, who tries to unite all of Greece in battle against the massive Persian army lead by Xerxes and the cunning Artemisia (Eva Green). As you can see in this poster, the heavily-pierced Xerxes wants Athens to burn. Will he get his wish? Perhaps we'll find out when director Noam Murro's action-adventure arrives at Comic-Con 2013 with a Hall H panel on Friday, July 19 at 10:45 AM.
